president obama has a new stance on corporations. interesting. let's take a look at google. now this is fascinating tax avoidance. you can name so many companies that do this. bloomberg wrote this story about google as an example of how they do this. google avoided $2 billion in worldwide income taxes by 2011 by shifting $9.8 billion in revenues to a bermuda shell company. they do things like the double irish and the dutch sandwich, which sounds like a different kind of sandwich to me because we're going to have to eat those taxes. if we lived in a real democracy do you think people would let corporations like google shift $9.8 million in taxes away from us or $2 billion in taxes all over the world away from themselves an on to us? that wouldn't happen in a democracy. but in our form of government the people who are served, the people who are represented are the one who is are the largest donors. if you look at how much google gave president obama as an example they gave $737,055. they were his third largest donor. weird how they get to get away with all those tax avoidance sche
